Possible bug with rootlogon macro

Dear ROOTers,

       probably what I discovered is a feature and not a bug of ROOT, but anyway I think it's a strange behavior and should be fixed. I have a general logon macro (to be loaded at user level) named ".rootlogon.C" and placed into the user home directory.

When root is executed from the user home directory, then the .rootlogon.C is called twice, once because it's user logon and once because it's the local logon. Of course, when root is executed from any other positions the macro is called only once.

Is there a workaround for that?

I'm using ROOT v5.13/04 on a FC4 system with gcc 4.0.2

Best regards,
